Amazing place to work. Nice area in Prov. near food, etc. Right off the highway. Great IT team. Really nice environment.

I worked at Providence Journal as a contractor (less than an year)

Pros

Decent pay (it's Providence, not Boston). IT director lets you do your job. No micromanaging there. Nice vibe, lots of mostly friendly and interesting people (reporters and photographers). The fact that the majority of employees have been there 20, 30, or more years speaks to what a great place this is to work.

Cons

The print industry is suffering and they've downsized significantly. Maybe if some deep-pocketed investor (hello, Mr. Buffet?) swoops in that'll change.

    Salary and colleagues made it enjoyable, more in the beginning than toward the end.

    Pros

    You work with some really talented people – writers, photographers, editors, designers, and illustrators (once upon a time). The salaries were once considered quite high because of the union, but they have not increased as steadily as they once did. Also, the 'us against them' feeling never seems to lessen.

    Cons

    Uncertainty is always the cloud hanging over you. There are not that many employees under 30 and longer. Cuts are always in the air and you could be the next one. Management seems wary of making meaningful and bold decisions and rarely asks for input from those in the trenches.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees. Ask their opinion. Every person I've ever worked with there cares 100% about the success of the company. Tell Texas why what they think will work best actually won't.
